Down to the Final Battle
If Ben makes it to the end, he wins, period. There's little that anyone else can do if he gets there. If not, then it gets interesting if both Ryan and Chrissy make the final three, where both have a case to win the million dollars(before taxes). Ryan with his social game, and Chrissy with her challenge wins and idols. Dr. Mike has a very slim chance with his moves against Ryan and Devon, but is otherwise not going to win. Devon simply has no chance, he was the right hand man to Ryan and Ben, in other words, forget it.
I'm a Lone Wolf Now
Ben had an alliance with Lauren, Ashley, and Devon to be the final four, except he broke that promise. By telling everyone after the immunity challenge that he was voting for Lauren, he convinced everyone to vote for Ben. The problem was that Dr. Mike threw half of Lauren's idol in the fire and the only lifeline for the groups plan to work, letting Ben vote out Lauren with one vote, shocking everyone but Joe on the jury.
Do I Have a Way Out of This Mess?
Joe was in a tough spot, without allies or an idol, his elimination seemed certain, this was until Lauren schemed up a plan to vote out JP by bringing Devon, Ben, and Ashley on the reward trip to reveal her plans. With Ben being a "double agent", JP got completly blindsided by the new alliance and voted out of the game.
I Guess Not
For Joe, he actually had the inevitable coming for him. The only reason they kept him around longer is for the numbers in the game. This was due since Joe was perceived as a threat in the game, finding and using idols. This showed to everyone else that he was a threat, and without allies or an idol, Joe couldn't survive any longer and was voted out.
Houston, Our Alliance is Falling Apart
And it continues to do so, with the grand alliance about to fracture, the sides are forming to battle. Still, there was a vote to be made and the healers were still on the wrong side of the numbers. And it didn't matter that the grand alliance was falling apart. The healers were still screwed, with Cole receiving a large majority of the votes, becoming the ninth person voted out of Survivor: Heroes vs Healers vs Hustlers.
Food, Fights, and "Forgeting" to Vote
The theme for Survivor this week was three F words, Food, Fights, and Forgetting to vote. After a reward challenge won by Chrissy, Cole, Devon, JP, and Ryan along with Joe who won without participating in the challenge. Leading into fights, the main fight was over an immunity idol when a clue was found by Cole, Chrissy and Ryan in that order. Ryan picked up the idol and Chrissy covered it back up with Cole fighting her for a supposed "idol". And Lauren with a secret advantage found at camp before the challenge, allowing her an extra vote by not voting at one tribal. Nobody noticed this even though there was a tie, regardless, Desi became the first member of the jury and the 8th person voted out of Survivor.
My Game Blew Up in my Face
And that it did. Ali's game was falling apart at this point. Losing almost all of her allies, her last hope was to make it to the merge and find new allies. For Ali, this plan didn't work as her tribe lost the immunity challenge and without allies on her current tribe, her impeding exit came to be as she became the final person voted out before the merge and the sixth person overall in an unanimous vote.
Welcome to the Playoffs
The merge is basically the Survivor playoffs. Like in sports, the most component players get in, and sometimes, a player or two that just squeaks by. Apparently, Jessica was that player that just got by to the merge. Riding her game with Cole, her game was all in one basket. The problem was that Cole was unpopular and with the Heroes and the Hustlers uniting together, they sent Jessica home as the seventh person voted out of Survivor.
My Game is Falling Apart
It doesn't matter who gets blame assessed to them, you need the numbers to actually go forward with that. Roark didn't have this, even though the blame got rightfully assessed on Chrissy for losing the immunity challenge. With Chrissy knowing that she's on the chopping block, she brought in her closest ally on her tribe Ryan. With his help, Ryan pulled in JP and the trio joined forces to blindside Roark, destroying Ali's game in the process, losing her closest ally in the process as Roark becomes the fifth person voted out of the 35th season of Survivor.
Alliances as of Week Five
Note: No Update Last Week Due to the Impending Tribe Swap
Your Annoying and Voted Out
Oh Patrick, you were fun to be around, key word, were. Eventually you became annoying to the rest of the tribe. This isn't helpful if you want to win. Survivor has three key elements, outwit, outplay, and outlast. To do this, you must have a strength, social, and a strategic game all at the same time. Patrick only had one of those, making him an easy target as he gets voted out unanimously by his tribe, becoming the third person voted out.
Your Advantage is Actually a Disadvantage
Joe went into tribal down on numbers, knowingly. With an idol in his pocket and trying to get people to vote for him, his plan worked to perfection. And to top it off, Devon received an advantage, that helped Joe instead of him. Devon's so called "advantage" revoked his ability to vote in tribal. With a tied vote possibly in the works and Joe playing an idol for himself, Alan is thrown under the bus and becomes the fourth person voted out of Survivor: Heroes vs Healers vs Hustlers.
Alliances as of Week Four
Welcome to the New Season
Season 35 of Survivor divides the tribes into three groups based on traits, the Heroes tribe(courage), the Healers tribe(helping others) and the Hustlers tribe(tenacity). Each tribe started with six castaways on each tribe, the goal being to outwit, outplay, and outlast the other contestants for 39 days to become the 34th(Sandra Diaz-Twine won twice) soul survivor. This season is the fourth season filmed on the island of Fiji, and the third straight season.
Out of the Game Already
Her game lasted a measly three days, after being exiled from the majority of her tribe, Katrina struggled. Chrissy was thought at first to be her ally but ended up getting voted out by everyone on her tribe at the first tribal council, ouch.
Simone's story is similar to Katrina's, being the odd person out from her tribe and being unable to connect with them, causing her early exit as soon as she went to tribal. At least she wasn't the first overall player voted out.
Alliances as of Week Two
I Can't Take Back That Move
There goes my advantage. The only thing that will save Sarah now is her legacy advantage and others not seeing her as the largest threat. Now without her last ally and out of advantages, Sarah's last chance will be her wits. With Tai at the bottom and a jockey at the top, who will win Survivor: Game Changers.
Strategy To Win
Aubry: Hold position, get rid of Tai.
Brad: Win immunity or work magic to stay alive.
Cirie: Make some type of move to give a chance of winning.
Sarah: Don't be stupid, losing allies and advantages quickly.
Tai: Use idols wisely, vote out Sarah.
Troyzan: Stay alive, keep Brad in front of you.
